PKRA News:Day 4 - Lay day for the Tarifa Pro Kite Tour

Day four of the Tarifa Pro Kite Tour 2014 came up short on wind as the strong conditions from the day prior diminished overnight. Arriving to the event site in the morning, competitors were greeted by overcast skies and glassy conditions in the competition area. As the forecast anticipated the wind to shift from the east to the west, both riders and organizers remained hopeful throughout the morning that the thermal Poniente winds would materialize. Clouds hung over the mountains with no sign of wind by the afternoon, wherein the event was called and competitors were released for the day.  

Despite the lack of wind, riders had no difficulty finding ways to enjoy the remainder of the day. Some chose to go to into the town or relaxed in the chill-out area at the Gisela Pulido Pro Center, while others headed in search of an afternoon surf session. With such a long and action-packed day yesterday, it seemed only appropriate for the wind gods to take a siesta today, in true Spanish fashion.

 

As the anticipation mounts for the freestyle discipline, the action in the coming days is certainly going to be interesting. Coming up in the second round of the men’s ladder, former world champions Youri Zoon (NL) and Aaron Hadlow (UK) will meet in a match up that is sure to see both riders putting it all on the line. With another top rider out of the mix due to injury, second ranked Marc Jacobs’ (NZ) absence will now allow more opportunities for movement in the top seats of the overall tour rankings.

 

Five days now remain in the event, and the stage is set to provide more intense freestyle action as the forecast promises optimal freestyle conditions throughout the remainder of the event. Tomorrow, riders will meet at 12 pm with a first possible start at 12:30 pm.  Stay tuned to the PKRA Facebook page and Twitter feeds throughout the event period for daily start times, live stream info, and results.
